    The TVR Sagaris. It's to be revealed at the British Motor Show.

    Uses the same 400bhp engine as the Tuscan S, and is a modified version of the popular T350.

    What do you guys think?

    TVR is great, I rented a Chimera last year while vacationing in Switzerland. Great fun. Not too fast, but perfect for Alpine excursions. That new one looks pretty aggressive.

    T350 did 1.14g in an independent magazine skidpad test. This one should be even better. On my list!

    It looks angry. Very angry.

    I think the front end with those 2 hoods reminds me of a Camels snout :)

    Is there a TVR in the new Loonye Toons Back in Action movie?

    Is it possible to say that TVR is coming to the US market?

    T350's face looks like a Boxter

    5 TVR Tuscans were used in the filming of Loony Tunes. I think they were a purple flip-flop colour.

    No news on TVR's US plans...but I am working on it!

    T350 is miles better looking than the Boxster from the front, IMO, and I don't see the similarity.

    Funny that certain cars (p1800's, TVR, other obscure makes) I have film radar for. Spotters threads abound. Lijke on Futurama, there was a flying Volvo p1800, and the owners' club went nuts, they naturally thought it was me. (the whole film connection and all)

    I have been hoping and praying for TVR in the US. The cornering on TVR, OH BABY. As much fun as the Lotus used to be in their prime.

    Checking your profile...you had a DB2/4? Any pics?

    There's a simply stunning one in Northern Cal whose ower comes out on our British Car Club drives sometimes. It's a beautiful sky-blue colour.

    I still do. No pictures yet, I am waiting on the completeion of the restoration. I had the head remilled at the factory, and it is not to my satisfaction, so I sent it back, and I am waiting on the bonnet hangars. So do laymanize, no hood, no motor. "Hood go boom!, engine go bang!"
